Abstract. Palaemonoidea is one of the most speciose superfamilies of Caridea. Since it was established, several classification schemes of Palaemonoidea have been proposed and modified. However, the current classification of Palaemonoidea is still in dispute. In this study, one mitochondrial gene (16S rRNA) and three nuclear genes (histone 3, 18S rRNA and 28S rRNA) were used to explore the phylogenetic relationships among the subgroups of the superfamily Palaemonoidea, including seven families… 
Systematic status of the caridean families Gnathophyllidae Dana and Hymenoceridae Ortmann (Crustacea: Decapoda): a further examination based on molecular and morphological data
The phylogenetic tree based on 43 species belonging to 28 genera shows that Gnathophyllidae and Hymenoceridae are nested within Pontoniinae, which is consistent with the distinct morphological differences in the pleopods.
An integrative approach to the evolution of shrimps of the genus Palaemon (Decapoda, Palaemonidae)
The present phylogeny indicates that the species of Palaemon fall into three distinct lineages and that the colonization of America and Europe likely occurred multiple times.
Mitogenome phylogenetics in the genus Palaemon (Crustacea: Decapoda) sheds light on species crypticism in the rockpool shrimp P. elegans
The largest and the first time-calibrated mitogenome phylogeny of the genus Palaemon is provided andMitochondrial genome and cox1 substitution rate estimates matched those published elsewhere, arguing that the Messinian Salinity Crisis was a plausible event driving the split between P. elegans and its cryptic species.
The family Anchistioididae Borradaile, 1915 (Decapoda: Caridea) is a synonym of Palaemonidae Rafinesque, 1815 based on molecular and morphological evidence
A further phylogeny of Palaemonoidea based on two mitochondrial and five nuclear markers is constructed to resolve the issue of the validity of Anchistioididae as a distinct family and it is argued that these are ambiguous and not well founded to support the family-level status of the genus.
A new species of shrimp of the genus Urocaridella Borradaile, 1915 (Decapoda: Caridea: Palaemonidae) from Papua New Guinea
Total evidence maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference phylogenetic analyses suggests that the new species is sister to a clade comprising U. antonbruunii Bruce, 1967, U. pulchella Yokes & Galil, 2006 and U. cyrtorhyncha Fujino & Miyake, 1969.
, 1890 and Pontoniinae Kingsley , 1879 all become synonyms of Palaemonidae Rafinesque , 1815 ( Crustacea : Decapoda )
Neither family in the shrimp families Gnathophyllidae and Hymenoceridae is valid, and all three supra generic taxa are formally synonymised with Palaemonidae.
Let’s be pals again: major systematic changes in Palaemonidae (Crustacea: Decapoda)
Neither family in the shrimp families Gnathophyllidae and Hymenoceridae is valid, and all three supra-generic taxa are formally synonymised with Palaemonidae.
Divergent evolutionary pathways and host shifts among the commensal pontoniine shrimps: a preliminary analysis based on selected Indo-Pacific species
Twenty-six Indo-Pacific pontoniine species from 23 genera, including both free-living and commensal taxa associated with different marine organisms from five phyla, are selected to preliminarily explore the differentiation process accompanied with the reciprocal natural selections between them and their hosts.
Multiple host switching events shape the evolution of symbiotic palaemonid shrimps (Crustacea: Decapoda)
It is revealed that free-living forms likely colonised cnidarian hosts initially, and switching between different host phyla occurred multiple times in palaemonid evolutionary history, suggesting host switching and adaptations to newly colonised host groups must have played an important role in the evolution of this diverse shrimp group.


Phylogeny of the Infraorder Caridea Based on Mitochondrial and Nuclear Genes (Crustacea: Decapoda)
The first comprehensive molecular phylogeny of the infraorder Caridea is presented, combining nuclear and mitochondrial gene sequences, to evaluate the relationships among 14 superfamilies and 30 families and suggests polyphyletic and paraphyletic relationships among genera within the families Atyidae, Pasiphaeidae, Oplophoridae, Hippolytidae, Gnathophyllidae, and Palaemonidae.
Systematic status of the caridean families Gnathophyllidae Dana and Hymenoceridae Ortmann (Crustacea : Decapoda): a preliminary examination based on nuclear rDNA sequences
Molecular analysis supports the similarities in larval morphology between Hymenoceridae, Gnathophyllidae and Pontoniinae and therefore draws into question the familial status of the former two groups.

Phylogenetic analysis using rDNA reveals polyphyly of Oplophoridae (Decapoda : Caridea)
Molecular phylogenetic analysis on nine of the ten genera in the caridean family Oplophoridae Dana, 1852, as well as 14 other caridean families using mitochondrial 16S and nuclear 18S rRNA genes,
Molecular phylogeny of the freshwater prawn genus Macrobrachium (Decapoda, Palaemonidae), with emphasis on the relationships among selected American species
The phylogenetic analysis of new mitochondrial DNA sequences of 58 species of Macrobrachium distributed mainly in America support the hypothesis of monophyly of this genus, and conclude that the independent evolution of different types of life cycle must have occurred more than once in the history of the group.
Molecular Systematics of the Freshwater Prawn Genus Macrobrachium Bate, 1868 (Crustacea: Decapoda: Palaemonidae) Inferred from mtDNA Sequences, with Emphasis on East Asian Species
Results suggest that the evolution of the freshwater prawn genus Macrobrachium was marked by rapid radiation, and most of the morphological characters commonly used to determine the taxonomy of genus evolved independently during the invasion of inland waters.
A preliminary study of 16S rRNA sequence variation in Australian Macrobrachium shrimps (Palaemonidae : Decapoda) reveals inconsistencies in their current classification
Phylogenetic analyses indicated inconsistencies with the current classification of palaemonid shrimps in Australia, and the two species from inland Australia, M. australiense and M. atactum, showed a high level of genetic similarity over a substantial geographic range, suggesting that they may represent conspecific populations.
